. we saw that in massachusetts, virginia and new jersey. here's the question, as we head into this election and see the state of the economy. we see the problems politically that he has. anything that this president can do at this late hour, rally or no rally? >> that's why he's flailing around, blaming fox, blaming bush. >> i think he could step back. get off the stage for a few days. rae says. and then the other thing that he could do is choose to ignore critics and let it go or he could engage. >> it is not in him. >> not everybody is going to agree with the decisions that he makes we should be able to understand the decision-making pro service. if i were he i would grant some interviews to fox news. >> sean: hannity first. >> i don't know if i would recollection machine that. >> sean: i would highly recollection -- recommend that. >> sean: i would highly recommend that. the fact congress going to leave washington go into an election and not let people know ha their tax rates are going to be january 1st? >> that is incredible. >> sean: 37 democrats said they would vote

that senator jim webb of virginia will vote with republicans on this, and that means majority leader harry reid and the democrats need least two republicans to help them repeal don't ask, don't tell. who might those republicans be? oft-mentioned possibilities are olympia snowe, susan collins, scott brown, and dick voinovich. two of those senators are from the same state, the state of maine. so that's why you had this event organized by the service member's legal defense network and the pop star about whom every continues to say, get her as a guest on your show, to which i continue to show, boy, i'd love to. >> i'm here because don't ask, don't tell is wrong. it's unjust and fundamentally, it is against all that we stand for as americans. in any workplace, there are tensions. there's even more possibility to have tension when you're fighting for your life. but i'm more concerned that john mccain and other republican senators are using homophobia as a defense in their argument, as the nexus of this law, openly gay soldiers affect unit cohesion. like, like it's okay to discriminate or discharge ga
to guam for a couple weeks. >> the same argument was used on the virginia race last year, the new jersey, massachusetts race last year. what they found is all those resources, all that money didn't make up for the intensity gap for the angry independents. >> if labor day is monday and that's the curtain raiser on the stretch of it, when you say how do i want to look at the map, what is your question? >> oh, my gosh. it would be, who comes out to vote? it all comes down to that. you know, when your chart doesn't have senior voters, we know in midterm elections, 40% of the electorate are seniors and they've never been a good group for barack obama. >> they've been trending more and more republican. you can go across the country and see the ads. will it work? >> seniors today are not the seniors of 30 years ago. the democrats keep treating seniors like they're the roosevelt seniors. they're not, they're the reagan seniors. so they react to them much differently and they're trying to go back to the old playbook. they need to rewrite the playbook. >> john, i'm struck by jim marshall. i wonder

. this is wre democrats did well in the last two cycles. we saw this in northern virginia, suburbs outside philadelphia, outside of las vegas and phoenix, even, this is where democrats we able to win over voters with a common sense kind of agenda, practic approach to making the middle- class better. what we found is a lot of residents there are falling on tough times and switching their loyalties. they are not necessarily tea party people, so they are not angry -- i talked to about two dozen residents of the subdivision who were political independents, and they did not say anything hateful about the president or that they were voting the tea party but they were critical of the president. it's good he said they were not tea party identifiers. -- host: yu said that they are concerned about everyday issues that affect their lives. how important of the suburbs or this area of this country -- not urban america or rural america, more of a middle-class enclave. guest: it is critical for both parties. it is where the growth is. not necessarily the closed in suburbs that have been established for a
star in the democratic party by the name of tom perriello running from southeastern virginia. he is in a fairly conservative district. he had the courage to vote for health care reform, financial reform, the bailout, and now is getting killed on that. he is 15 or 20 points behind. that is a district where they may pull the money even though he is a rising star and put it in that district where dana bash is that didn't seem close before but now is close. they want to save that seat and they have a real fighting chance there. >> these are going to be really tough, wrenching decisions. >> very hard decisions. you have tom perriello, he had the future written all over him. he'll come back in politics i hope somewhere but that's the kind of person you want to see stay in politics. >> yes. all right. we'll see what hamppens. thank you. >>> a fast moving wildfire endangering areas in and around colorado's four mile canyon. we'll have an update. one official calls it chilling in its callousness. the details of the killing of a pizza delivery man. beh d the th they just thought of everyth
mean, the state of virginia, you know very well a few weeks ago in that primary vote, you were up, what, 35 percent in a republican turnout over last time? >> huge. bill: that's substantial. >> you're going to have -- there's no doubt in my mind you're going to have a very big republican turnout and much of it if not most of it will be a protest vote. protest votes are very powerful motivation, not to be underestimated and apathy in midterms with the party in power is also a very distinct problem that occurs tile and again, particularly when times are bad, and times remain bad in the eyes of most americans. americans weren't loving the way the economy was growing when it was growing in the middle years of the bush administration, they certainly aren't happy with it now and they're not going to be happy any time soon. these measures taken now by the president i don't think are going to have any noticeable effect. bill: we'll debate if this in 30 minutes with doug schoen and brad blakeman. good to see you. >> i hope so. juliet: such a cool guy. >>> tropical storm hermine barreling into th

're right, megyn. here in west virginia barack obama may be the decisive personality and his agenda could turn the whole election. john raese, the republican, ran for office before, hammering hard on barack obama. joe manchin is popular incumbent democratic governor. he made something of a career going against the grain. moderate to conservative democrat and been really, really tough on barack obama and the agenda. you look at ads however, you see each side taking sort of normally expected positions. manchin attacking raese for his business record and raese attacking manchin for being much more liberal than he let's on. let's listen. >> john race z bad for mine workers. 600 safety violations. >> john raese puts profits before people. i don't trust him to look out for these minors. and neither should you. >> listen to joe manchin supporting obama care. >> i am totally behind health care reform and -- [applause] >> say it ain't so, joe? you are totally behind the medicare cuts that will affect our seniors? you want bigger government and higher taxes to pay for it? sorry, joe, seniors can't
